Eco-Friendly Business Practices

When you buy from Colad, you can be certain that the paper used to create your products is sourced ethically and responsibly.

Colad is the premier provider of custom paper-based packaging in the U.S. For more than 60 years, Colad has worked to improve the health and safety of both our employees and the environment. Our focus on environmental stewardship is two-pronged:

Colad works very closely with recycling companies to ensure that every material that can be recycled gets recycled. In 2015, Colad recycled over 900 tons of paper-based scrap the equivalent of:

  • Saving 22,437 trees
  • Reducing total energy consumption enough to power 363 homes per year
  • Removing the greenhouse gas emissions from 466 cars per year
  • Conserving enough water to fill 24 Olympic-sized swim pools
  • Keeping 70 garbage trucks worth of solid waste out of landfills

We have eliminated all acetone and alcohol emissions, and removed hazardous waste material from our operations.

We minimize the use of press solvents and what we use is better for the health of the environment and our employees than what was available in prior years.

We have upgraded to newer, faster, safer equipment and in the process replacing harmful emission-producing machinery.

We have converted from wet-based lamination systems that produce hazardous byproducts to clean, water-based thermal lamination processes
